Indian Mutiny - A Sigh of Relief

Yesterday evening we got around to trying out our tweaked Fistful of Lead rules - with tweaked meaning that we tried to include units 6 man strong, but keep some individual figures as heroes.

This was actually the second game of testing as I had had a game on Sunday, where we found out that certain things did not work. So this game would incorporate the changes from that game.

The scenario "A Sigh of Relief" was lifted from The Men Who Would Be Kings rulebook. An immovable object - in this case a broken down wagon - is placed in the middle of the table and part of the defenders force must protect it until reinforcements arrive. The attacker of course has to overrun the object.

I played the British/HEIC and placed my leader Capt. Saunders with a group of Gurkhas and a group of Sikhs with the broken down wagon. Two groups of Neill's Blue Caps, a group of civilians and two heroes would be the reinforcements.

My friend Jon played the mutineers, and had a force which included regular sepoys, sepoy riflemen and badmashes.

Despite the reinforcements arriving swiftly, the defending escort was coming under pressure fast from the unrushing mutineers.

What followed was a fun game, where we got a few more rules fixed and adjusted.

The mutineer clearly won, especially after Capt. Saunders was slain by a group of bloodthirsty badmashed.

We will definately have a more games with the rules.

Indian Mutiny huts

With Indian Mutiny on the table again, I decided that I wanted to make some buildings that were suitable and very much made for the mutiny and not Sudan or the like.

Googling what was available I came across a nice Indian hut availble from Caliver Books. I decided that this would be within the scope of my ability to make. They took me two weeks work to make and was fairly easy to make.
I am very pleased at how they turned out, and how cheap they were to make.

Hopefully they will add a sense of India to the tabletop.

Indian Mutiny revisited

A couple of years ago I sold my collection of Indian Mutiny figures that I had collected for Sharp Practice. The sale was made primarily because I at the time had problems finding someone to play with, but I really liked the figures and the setting.

Since then I have been thinking about getting some of the figures again. I now have several friends who would like to play the game/setting with me. So two months ago I made a purchase from Iron Duke Miniatures and Mutineer Miniatures, which I have steadily been painting up.

The collection is not as large as my previous one, but I have already ordered some reinforcements. But here is the collection as it currently stands.
